Julia Brownley

US House of Representatives
California District #26
State Primary: June 5 , 2012

Current state Assemblywoman is running for an open seat in a newly created District against two other Democrats and GOP State Senator Tony Strickland -- and a well-known former Republican now running as a centrist independent -- a nightmare scenario for progressives, according to MoveOn's Daniel Mintz, who told the Los Angeles Times:

"There could turn out to be no Democrat on the ballot in November in a district the party could win."

From her website:

Since being elected to the State Assembly in 2006, Brownley has delivered for Ventura County. Her accomplishments on behalf of the county’s residents include bringing significant funding for technical job training to the California State University Channel Islands to get people back to work and leading the effort to clean up toxic waste from the Santa Susana Field Laboratory to keep our families healthy and safe.

Brownley has also dedicated her life to improving our schools, colleges and universities. Julia first became involved in education when she joined the PTA to improve the local school her daughter Hannah and her son Fred were attending.  Julia went on to run for School Board because she thought our schools could do better for all kids. As a School Board President and one of California’s leading education advocates, Julia helped increase student performance in local schools, fought to cut administrative spending to put more resources in the classroom, gave schools more local control and pushed to make sure every student has a quality teacher.

Brownley believes it is a moral and economic imperative that we fix our broken health care system and ensure access to affordable, quality health care for all Californians. In the State Assembly, Julia fought to regulate health insurance companies so they can’t hike up premiums on consumers without approval from the state’s Insurance Commissioner.

An effective advocate for women, Brownley is a leader in preventing domestic violence, strongly supports a
woman’s right to choose, and will fight to make sure health insurance companies cover contraception, prenatal and preventive care for everyone.
